Showcasing Student Work for Digital Learning Day

Written by The Current
February 01, 2012

Digital Learning Day encourages everyone—teachers, librarians, school leaders, and parents—to participate, regardless of experience, in the exploration of digital teaching practices by starting a conversation, trying one new thing, and showcasing success.

On Digital Is, many educators create resources that not only showcase, but also reflect on a range of examples of student work and reflections. Instead of judging whether or not a digital learning project was “a success,” the educators listed below (and many others in Digital Is) approach their resources as opportunities to share both the work and the reflections emerging from various projects and practices. By including the reflective piece, they support themselves and their students in thinking deeply about what was learned and why it matters.

Showcasing student work focuses on the learning that happens every day.
